In Malaysia, the situation is quite the opposite of Thailand for the Toyota Hilux and Isuzu D-Max. As of last year, the Toyota Hilux is still the best-selling pickup truck in Malaysia. For the Malaysian market, the Toyota Hilux is offered in single-cab and double-cab versions with either the 2.4-litre turbodiesel engine or the 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine. There is also a GR Sport version of the double-cab pickup truck.

The latest development on the Toyota Hilux is that it will soon be offered with a mild hybrid system. The mild hybrid system will be paired with the 2.8-litre turbodiesel engine and improve the efficiency of the Toyota Hilux.
